Sound basis for a direct /digital marketing course
By Edward E. Rigdon on January 20, 2013
There is nice coverage and good up-to-date information about digital marketing today. He book also includes links to more information, It is not a textbook, of course, but it is not full of embarrassing rah-rah and it does not read like some professor-type just did a little reading and churned out 400 pages of regurgitation. U.S. buyers may be turned off by its UK focus and examples, but don’t be dismayed. The quality and meatiness of the writing carry the book. You will certainly supplement with something else, depending on your emphasis, but this is a nice sold work that can provide a core for your course.

I gave each member of the creative team this book during our strategy planning for the next 5 years and it got the team thinking much farther than they could have imagined. A great tool.
